Clyde Valley Care Home originally know as Monteith House is a Castle style mansion which started construction in 1802, it took 20 years to complete.
The stunning building was commissioned by Henry Monteith for his wife and included many intricate designs specifically dedicated to her.
There are 365 windows in the original building, so she had a window to enjoy for every day of the year. It was a true labour of love.
The building has stood the test of time and has had many uses over the years including world war 2 training station and an orphanage.
We provide 24 hour nursing care for younger adults with various mental health issues including learning difficulties and brain injuries among others.
We have thirty three bedrooms, all of which are decorated and furnished to a high standard and have en-suite and independent kitchen facilities.
The home is set in its own grounds with extensive gardens accessible to all, as well as beautiful views of the countryside and a short walk to the neighbouring farm to view the sheep and cows.
The local village Carstairs, has a shop which our residents can walk to or be assisted if required we also are only 4 miles from the local shopping town, Lanark which gives access for residents to remain independent and take time out.
We also are involved with lots of local activities and take part in the Gala day each year and host fetes and galas for locals to come and support.
Various residents attend the college in Motherwell to learn different skills and we also have residents with part time volunteering jobs.
We are also involved with local initiatives such as CCI where our residents are involved in the sensory gardens and men’s shed, expanding and learning new life skills and promoting independence and social skills.
